Martin Jol’s side began the season with a confident 1-0 win against bottom of the table Sunderland, but have unfortunately failed to maintain this winning form since, having picked up just one point in their other four games. But after a 2-1 mid-week win against Everton in the Capital one Cup, things look on the up.
Cardiff City have had a turbulent introduction to the Premier League losing their first game to West Ham, but then going on and pulling off a tremendous home performance against Manuel Pellegrini’s formidable Manchester City squad, resulting in a 3-2 win to the newcomers.
Malky Mackay’s men find themselves one point ahead of their opposition leading up to Saturday’s fixture and will be yearning for a win, hoping to distance themselves from the ever approaching relegation zone. Fulham find themselves currently third from bottom and are in desperate need of a win and those precious three points, which should enable them to climb out of the bottom three.
